Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Threatens BLOGGERS with Legal Action for the Publishing and Sexualizing of Photos of her 14 year Old Daughter

Nollywood Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde’s letter is self explanatory. Read it below. If you want to see a parallel case on the US end on what parents can do when minors are sexualized without their consent, read my article “Spread Eagle” Underage Teen Model Photo Lands Urban Outfitters & Photographer Jason Lee Parry in $28Million Trouble.


“Thank you to everyone who wished Meraiah a happy birthday. However, going to a 14 year old’s “private” online accounts to post her pictures for public viewing is totally Inappropriate . Her father and I are horrified asparents and guardian that a minor’s picture can be paraded online as hot” ,”sexy” etc…

We know the bloggers probably meant no harm but in a world full of pedophiles and sickos, every adult with morals should know where to draw the line. This was started by a lady called Kemi Filani but she has since apologized and taken down the photos but her reckless blog post lives on.

I WILL NOT hesitate henceforth to use everything within my power to bring ANYONE to justice who does this with any of my under aged kids after “this” first time episode!

Any child under 18 should be protected by us all and if theirparents/guardian haven’t given you the okay to publish information especially “private” of their child, doing so, is against the law.

I hope you all understand, thanks. Omotola.
